It rained last night…but not on our awards.
Over 200 people gathered at the Hudson Theatre at the Millennium Broadway Hotel for our 6th Annual Hospitality Design (HD) Awards for Creative Achievement. Honorees from all over came to celebrate–Mumbai, Toronto, Abu Dhabi, and Hong Kong just to name a few.
And a big thanks to all of our sponsors: Interiors From Spain and Mark David who sponsored the event; our awards, which sparkled from the stage, were produced by UltraGlas; and our after party, hosted by Hampshire Hotels, Vikram Chatwal Hotels, Stonehill & Taylor Architects and Planners, Ulster Carpets, and Soho Myriad at Dream Hotel, was a great time for all with more networking, nibbles, and even some guests busting a move.
As always, I played “Jana White” on stage, handing out roughly 70 awards to all of our winners and finalists. It was rewarding to see so many firms come up on stage to accept this great honor. This year, we had a record breaker–HBA took home 17 awards for projects Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort, the St. Regis Atlanta, and the Four Seasons Resort Seychelles.
But the big surprise–HBA had to carry another four awards home because the firm was honored with Best of Show for its Seychelles property!
After six years of working on these awards, it just gets better and better. We want to congratulate all of our honorees and can’t wait to see what you are working on next.
